The K9 Guide to Haworth

Haworth is one of the most dog-friendly towns in the Yorkshire region we have come across with nearly every shop on the main street being dog friendly or at the very least having a dog water bowl outside.

This quaint Yorkshire town is best known for its connection to the Bronte sisters as they wrote many of their books at what is now the Bronte parsonage museum.

If you like having a gentle amble with your dog popping in and out of gift shops and stopping for coffees or a beer then this is the place for you. The town predominantly focused around Main Street which is a  fairly steep cobbled street lined either side with beautiful old buildings and stunning views.

Please be warned that many of the shops don’t open at the start of the week so Mondays and Tuesdays are best avoided unless you are happy just to meander up and down looking at the architecture and taking in the views and the atmosphere.

Parking is easily located at the top part of the town Haworth Centre Car & Coach Park (BD22 8DA) although there is also some paid on-street parking nearby. Prices aren’t extortionate and you can use cash or card.

Nearly every shop on Main Street welcomes our four-legged friends and many have signs in their window if in doubt.  In terms of places to eat and drink you are spoilt for choice depending on what type of thing you are in the market for.


The Black Bull

One of the most prestigious looking and oldest venues at the top of Main Street, this large pub has both indoor and outdoor seating and dogs are welcome throughout. Having recently been refurbished it (along with The Kings Arms) is the only place in the world where you can buy the  Bridgehouse Bronte beers.

The Kings Arms

The Kings Arms is another gem of a pub for a spot of lunch or dinner. They have a  great indoor seating area as well as a fairly spacious outdoor beer garden that has some lovely shaded spots if your dog needs a cool space to relax after pounding the pavement. They have dog treats on hand at the bar and love making a fuss of 4 legged visitors.

The Fleece Inn

The Fleece Inn is located right at the bottom of Main Street and is a firm favourite for beer enthusiasts. With treats behind the bar and water bowls at the ready they always welcome dogs come rain or shine. As well as being a great dog-friendly pub with a classic British menu, The Fleece Inn also offers lovely accommodation including a designated room for guests with dogs!


Cobbles & Clay - Jill's Café

Cobbles & Clay is a cafe and pottery painting studio situated at the top of Main Street. This surprisingly spacious cafe allows dogs inside as well as on their outdoor seating area which is perfectly positioned for a spot of people watching.

If you are in the area for breakfast this definitely looked like a locals’ favourite spot for breakfasts with some amazing options on the menu and some delicious looking cakes. Their menu offers fresh, healthy, and modern dishes, with a wide selection of gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options.

Cloth Store

A very smart modern bar & kitchen venue that has recently been completely refurbished and the best thing is they let dogs inside as well as on their stunning hidden terrace. They have a resident dog on site so are always happy to welcome people with their dogs and they sell treats as well as human food of course. Their menu changes regularly with a great selection of cuisine types so a great place to stop for lunch or dinner if you fancy something a little fancier! Please note they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. 


Paws on Sofas

One of the only pet shops in Haworth itself, this lovely little boutique on Main Street handpicks a selection of luxury and stylish dog sofas, beds and accessories for dog owners like you who have lots of love and passion for their four-legged friends.

Denholme Pet Emporium

Denholme Pet Emporium is located in Denholme just on the outskirts of Haworth. Free parking on-site and a great place to pop into if you have forgotten any of your essential items or need to top up your treat supply. They have a huge range of different dog foods and if you are a raw feeder and struggle to take your raw dog food supply with you when travelling then this is a great place to stock up when visiting the area.

Just around the corner in the same building is the Bronte Training Centre which is a purpose-built training centre that specialises in both puppy and adult dog courses as well as progression and advanced dog training.  Paula who runs the training centre is a qualified instructor through the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.


Keighly & Worth Valley Railway

If you are looking for an activity for the whole family when visiting the area then this steam train experience is something everyone can enjoy.  Dogs are allowed to ride with their owners on all the normal service trains for £1 (assistance dogs travel free of charge) however they are  NOT allowed in carriages where food is being served, for example, the Haworth Haddock dining train.

The Railway is perhaps most famous for its role in the 1970 film version of Edith Nesbit’s story The Railway Children and is a preserved standard gauge line that joins the national railway network at Keighley and runs 5-miles up the valleys of the River Worth and Bridgehouse Beck to Oxenhope.

If you fancy stretching your legs and working up an appetite before heading into the town it’s worth taking the time to visit the walk below.

Brontë Waterfall / Top Withens

This is a spectacular circular walk from the Parsonage Museum along the Brontë Way past the Brontë Waterfall and up to Top Withens.

Top Withens the (now roofless) farmhouse building you see along this route is thought to be the choice of Emily Bronte as the home of Heathcliff of Wuthering Heights fame and the explanatory plaque provided by the Bronte Society supports this view.
